A Volunteers Story

Sam is a registered blind mum from Kirklees, who has been volunteering for KVIN since June 2017.

She says, ‘I met a KVIN volunteer through social media, who suggested I might like to get involved. I now run the organisations social media and offer peer support. Since joining the charity I have had the opportunity to learn new skills such as website building, and made a number of new friends. I would definitely recommend volunteering to others. ‘
